A single helical strip

As I discussed in the previous posts, following Chern's construction scheme, I used 16 helical strips to build the overall 2x2x2 gyroical graphitic structure. Each strip contains 8 eight-bead loops, four with blue color and four with purple color as shown in the following photos.

It is interesting note that one can easily create a kink in this helical strip on purpose. A kink in a helix changes the handedness from left to right.
